I just recieved my new 6BR calling rifle. It is based on a lightened Rem 600 with a pencil thin #1 or #0 Shelen 1x10" 20" barrel and a Banser light weight stock. Total weight with a Leupold VX-II 3x9 scope, sling and 3 cartridges (70 gr. bullets) is 6lbs 2oz.
For Coyotes I want to use Sierra 70 gr. BlitzKings, CCI 450 primers and Varget. Because I use it in temperatures as low as 0 F I would like to use one of Hodgdons Extreme powders.
Is Varget appropriate for 70 gr's or should I try something else?

Varget or N135 are my choices in powders.

Benchmark would be a good choice with light bullets and short barrels.

Ramshot's "Tac" powder with 65 V-Max and 70 BT's is a great 6BR varmint load.

The new RL-10x, N-135, and Varget get great groups.

If you want to move them faster, H-380 and W-760 will give you
more speed with good accuracy. RL-15 will really sing them, but is getting to the slow side of the chart, so work your charges up with it.
